Are you drawn to packaging? Does pretty or well-done packaging sucker you in? Are you immune to the powers of persuasive packaging?

I love good packaging, and I’d definitely say I’m drawn in by it. However, I refuse to buy something purely because the case is aesthetically pleasing. It has to be useful and worth the price (on some level of justification, at least!) if I’m going to purchase it.

DRY SKIN RESCUE TREATMENT
A homemade facial mask that enriches skin with a healthy dose of all natural moisture.

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon jojoba oil
  • 1 teaspoon rose hydrosol
  • 1 teaspoon whipping cream

Directions
Mix all ingredients thoroughly in a bowl, and once the mixture has a creamy consistency, apply a layer over entire face. As it is a mask, allow the mixture to rest on your face for 15 minutes. Wash mask off with warm water, pat dry (never rub) with a clean towel. Moisturize if needed!
